The federal court system is a different beast. The laws, the procedures and the consequences of a conviction all vary significantly from the Massachusetts criminal justice system. Even experienced criminal defense lawyers can feel intimidated in federal court.

At Carney, Gaudet & Carney, we are not intimidated by the federal court system. For more than 35 years, Jay Carney and his team of attorneys have been defending clients against federal criminal charges – with great success.

Our firm is headed by Jay Carney, one of the most respected criminal defense attorneys in the state. His trial work in state and federal court is prolific, and his experience includes everything from money laundering and criminal conspiracy to federal drug charges and murder.

We defend individuals charged with the following federal crimes:

A Federal Criminal Conviction Will Change The Direction Of Your Life

Being convicted of a crime in federal court is life-changing. Fines are high and prison sentences are long – with little chance of early release. Depending on the type of crime involved, you may be subject to mandatory lifelong registration requirements or GPS monitoring.

Our lawyers understand how the federal criminal justice system differs from Massachusetts, and know how to successfully navigate it. We develop strong, effective defenses that protect our clients against the harsh consequences of a federal criminal conviction.

Case Result

Conspiracy to Commit Immigration Document Fraud and Marriage Fraud
RESULT: Client is spared prison time on a serious federal charge and is allowed to remain home with her young child.

Our client, a young single mother, was charged in federal court with conspiring to commit immigration document fraud and marriage fraud. Client worked for an agency that paired non-citizens with American citizens who were willing to enter into sham marriages to help others fraudulently obtain green cards. Attorney Daniel J. Gaudet represented our client. After our client’s guilty plea, the government asked that the Court incarcerate her for one year. The advisory sentencing guidelines recommended that the Court imprison our client for a minimum of ten months. After thoroughly presenting our client’s background and the circumstances of her crime, Attorney Gaudet successfully convinced the federal Court to place our client on probation instead of sending her to prison.
